Much reporting these days gains exposure through electronic means. It is one of the fastest, easiest ways to gain exposure when done correctly.
My environmental blog, 4.543B…and Counting, and The Rack Site are projects truest to my journalistic form. These topical blogs were composed with the expressed purpose of conveying news stories in a clean, concise, and logical way to establish journalistic integrity. The third addition is a research piece I did for Digital Writing. Though these stories largely work with logic and facts to establish journalistic credibility, an emotional component plays into this as well. This is particularly true when addressing issues pertaining nature conservation or actions that could curtail climate change. Emotional investment becomes necessary to push readers into action where dry, cold, facts fall short.
